New Brunswick police searching for overpass rock throwers

| 10/31/2007

Police in New Brunswick, Canada, say there’ve seen five cases in the past month of someone throwing large rocks off an overpass and shattering the windows of vehicles below – mainly tractor-trailers.

According to the Daily Gleaner in Fredericton, New Brunswick, the most recent incident involved a Nova Scotia trucker and his wife, who were on the Trans-Canada Highway east of Fredericton when rocks shattered their windshield.

Neither was hurt, but the exploding windshield caused the driver to make an abrupt lane change without checking first for other vehicles.
